You reap what you sow, so you should definitely consider implementing an inventory management system like Fishbowl to track everything from seed to sale. Fishbowl gives you access to the following features to help you in this endeavor.

Expiration Dates – Fishbowl has many types of inventory-tracking criteria, and the most popular in the Agriculture industry is expiration dates. Rotate through your inventory in a timely fashion to minimize waste.
Product Lifecycles – As products grow or decline in popularity, you can stay ahead of the curve by using Fishbowl’s forecasting feature. Use past sales data to predict future trends and always have the right quantity on hand.
Custom Tracking – If you want to go beyond the usual tracking criteria, you can create your own with unlimited custom fields. Harvest dates are a popular custom tracking option.
